International Sweeny Association



Recently, I have had a desire to create a central hub for all the Sweeny's around the world. Of course, there are many variations to the Sweeny name. In America, it is mainly Sweeny or Sweeney. But other variations I should mention are MacSweeny, MacSweeney, MacSwiney, MacSwiny, McSweeney, McSweeny, McSwiney, McSwiny, Sweeney, Sweeny, Sweny, Sweney, Swiney, Swinney, Mac Suibhne and others respectively. The International Sween(e)y Association was established to bring these surnames together. To share family lines, photos, and stories. I believe that over time, many will be able to get very useful information from the ISA and maybe find missing links that have been hard to find. isweeny.org will have a registry ready for those that would like to join. If individuals would like to submit photos or family lines, they will be posted on the isweeny.org website.

He began military service in September, 1777.  In the Revolutionary War Burton Blizard served in Capt. Daniel Smith's Militia and Frederick Keister's Company.  His service record follows.
BLIZZARD, Burton (Sarah). W.20720.
     4 Dec. 1833. Pendleton Co., Va. Burton (X) Blizzard of said county, aged 76, declares he volunteered in Sept. 1777 in the company of Virginia militia of Rockingham County commanded by Capt. Daniel Smith, raised to guard the frontier settlements against the Indians. He marched to the west of the Allegheny Mountains to Tygert's Valley and was stationed in Friends' Fort where he served as a private until the expiration of his three month term.
     In Sept. 1778 he was drafted in Rockingham County and served three months against the Indians as private in the company of Lieut. Frederick Keister.  He marched to Tygert's Valley.
     On 4 or 5 Sept. 1779 he entered service as a substitute for his younger brother John Blizzard who had been drafted for three months to go to the northwest against the Indians. He was a private in the company of Capt. Robert Davis of Rockingham County and marched to the west fork of the Monongahela where he was stationed at Lowder's Fort.
      He also served at least twenty days under the orders of Capt. Robert Davis against the Tories.
     6 Dec. 1833. Pendleton Co., Va. Thomas (X) Hoover of said county declares that in the latter part of 1779 Burton Blizzard served three months in the company of Capt. Robert Davis of Rockingham County and was stationed in Lowder's Fort on the West Fork of the Monongahela. He was in the same mess as Hoover.
     6 May 1839. Pendleton Co., Va. Sarah (X) Blizzard of said county, aged 77, declares she is the widow of Burton Blizzard. She was married in Dec. 1780 by a minister of the Baptist Church and her husband died 17 March 1837.
     6 May 1839. Pendleton Co., Va. Samuel Blizzard declares Burton Blizzard died 17 March 1837.

Burton was drafted for a short tour of twenty days to march to Richmond, Va., in the spring or early summer of 1781 and served under Davis' father who was a captain of the company. They only marched a part of the way down (he understands to the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Shenandoah River at the foot of the mountains). They were then countermanded and returned and went against the Tories on the waters of the Potomac River.
     7 May 1839. Pendleton Co., Va.  Frederick Keister declares he is 64 years of age and remembers he was present at the wedding party when Burton Blizzard brought his wife home after they were married. He was too young to recollect the year but believes it was about the end of the Revolutionary War. He often heard Burton speak of having been drafted for twenty days under Capt. Robert Davis and having served against the Tories on the headwaters of the Potomac.
     19 Oct..1840. Pendleton Co., Va. Mary (X) Swadley, aged 83 declares she knew Burton Blizzard and Sarah his wife, who was Sarah Keister for more than sixty years. She knows they were married at least sixty years, from the birth of her youngest son who was born 10 Oct. 1781 as appears from the register of births of her children in her own family Bible.
